Spring is here!

This week I had my first bite from a red centipede (crawling into my sandal and biting my foot) and the first green stink bug eggs on my laundry.

Yes, soon we'll be enjoying the soothing buzz of mosquitoes in our bedrooms and luxuriating in 98% humidity.

Try wearing thicker socks in your sandals Alan. Or consider shoes.

Actually I was at my desk and I don't wear shoes inside regardless.

And you'd need kevlar socks to protect you from a centipede bite.

Great to see that our senior forum members have kept their good humour while I've been away for a week.

Since being bitten myself on the top of my foot by a red centipede several years ago, I've stopped wearing socks and sandals, even though I still highly encourage it as a Lamma fashion statement.

But wearing sneakers doesn't protect you either as I was stung by a hornet THROUGH my sneaker last year. Having a closer looks at those (bullet-proof?) Kevlar socks....

Yes, Lamma Wildlife - plus the ferries and our local soaring property prices far beyond the HK average - all main reasons that we're still not flooded by new residents and can still enjoy a (reasonably) leisurely and relaxed lifestyle much of the week.... So we should actually be thankful to Lamma's Wildlife!
